Senior executives at dental and medical assistants are set to be the main targets of the new global assistance program for India.
The dental and healthcare assistant certification will become mandatory in India from June 1, 2018 and the medical assistant certification is expected to follow soon after.
According to the dental assistant job listings on the government’s official website, the new dental and assistant certification for India will be a “national” job requirement for people with a bachelor’s degree in the field.
The post has been created for job seekers with an associate degree, the listing states.
The medical assistant job listing has also indicated that the dental assistants are to be required to complete a two-year degree course and a two year course in medical science.
This is a change from the previous mandate of a dental assistant to complete two years of degree and two years in medical sciences.
The listing states that the current medical assistant program in India has been plagued by high attrition.
